Gum Grafting

What is gum grafting?

Gum grafting is a form of tissue engineering where we use varied techniques to expand the tissue around your teeth where the gum has begun to recede around the teeth.

Why is gum grafting sometimes necessary?

Most often, gum grafting is a necessary step to prevent tooth loss. For teeth to be resilient they must be supported by healthy, sturdy gums.

Is it painful?

No, the procedure itself does not hurt as the gums are numbed.
